SECAUCUS, N.J. — Goya Foods, Inc. the Largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States announced its relief efforts for the victims of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that devastated Haiti.
Goya mobilized immediately after tragedy struck on January 12th. Goya Puerto Rico brought much-needed personnel and supplies to Port-au-Prince and Goya Dominican Republic has been coordinating with Haitian authorities to send food and supplies over the border. Facilities that are participating in the relief effort on the mainland include Goya Foods in Florida, Texas, and New Jersey. These coordinated efforts will bring over 300,000 pounds of food items to the earthquake victims.
One of the organizations Goya is working with to provide food supplies to the people of Haiti is Florida-based Food for the Poor, the largest international relief and development organization in the United States. “We are so very grateful for Goya reaching out at this time to the people of Haiti, who are desperate now more than ever for something to eat,” said Angel Aloma, Executive Director of Food For The Poor. “This generous donation will allow us to expedite much needed food and get it into the hands of the hungry.”
Bob Unanue, President of Goya Foods, adds “We are profoundly moved by the suffering our brothers and sisters in Haiti are experiencing. The loss of life and the devastation that has affected so many families is unimaginable. We at Goya are keeping them in our thoughts and in our prayers as they struggle through this terrible tragedy.”
